This is the fiftieth book I read this year and it is by far the best. Lucy was hit by lightning and this made her a savant - a Math Genius. She loves working on Math Problems and is supremely happy till her Nana decides she has to go to Middle School.McAnulty describes Lucy's trauma trying to fit into Middle School and she guards her secret of being a genius with all her might since she doesn't want to be considered more of a freak. A school project makes her friends with Windy and Levi and then surprisingly a dog she named pi. The book is gripping and heart-rending at the same time and has a cool ending. I would recommend this book for all the tweens on your list and if you get a chance to, read it before you hand it to them:-)
